Full W-band MMIC medium power amplifier
A full W-band, MMIC amplifier has been tested on-wafer. The chip delivers 25-43 mW with 6.2±1.2 dB associated large-signal gain across 75-110 GHz when input power is held constant at 8 mW. This is the widest bandwidth MMIC amplifier ever published that delivers at least 25 mW over the entire W-band.
Additional Information© 2000 IEEE. We appreciate the excellent work of the TRW GaAs MMIC processing group, especially Y.C. Chen and M. Nishimoto, for fabricating the devices described in this paper. The fabrication work was support by the FIRST program of JPL/Caltech under contract to NASA.
